Isn't Strategic Planning best done by an organization, internally?
In a word - Yes. But, that assumes several factors exist about your organization - from top level leaders to bottom level employees, including stakeholders. First, that everyone fully understands the planning process, and knows their part in it. Second, it assumes that leaders are familiar with a proven strategic planning model, and have all the time and resources to devote to shepherding the process to a successful conclusion. Our expert and experienced consultants have the necessary skills to train and inform all organization members and stakeholders about the details of the planning process, as well as our copyrighted 21st Century Library Strategic Plan Model process.

Why do I need a consultant to help my organization improve?
It is not uncommon for Boards and higher headquarters to think an organization should be able to improve without outside help. But consider the answers to the first two questions above. You'll notice that our consultants have a wealth of knowledge and expertise that comes from decades of study, research, work and experience - knowledge, skills and expertise that most organizations do not have among their staff - which means we will provide information, training, guidance and solutions. Legendary oil well fire fighter Red Adair has been quoted as saying, "If you think it's expensive to hire an expert, try hiring an amature to put out your fires." Oil well fires cost hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars every day they burn out of control. How much would it cost your organization in time and resources to attempt organizational change without expertise in the areas that your organization needs to become the best possible organization you envision?
